(A Day in the life of a child series)
Directors, Dirk Gryspeirt, Laurent Muhawe.
Although many children of Rwanda in eastern Africa attend school, they are also expected to help with goat, rabbit, and chicken raising and do other chores. Rwandan life is presented through the eyes of a young boy who describes the rhythms of a typical day. His older sister rises first to fetch water and help her mother prepare breakfast for the family. Before going to school, the boys complete their tasks and wash in the lake. In school, children learn Arithmetic, French and Rwandan history and culture. Those children too poor to attend classes make pots and bricks or pick tea leaves. The narrator's 14-year-old brother, Vincent, sleeps during the day so that he can fish on the lake throughout the night. Twice a week, the family sells surplus fruit and vegetables at the market and buys clothes. Almost everyone takes a turn fixing the nation's ever-deteriorating roads.
